The Hill is no different from any other club. Most people attend "clubs" or "bars" to hear loud music. As far as the alledged drug use, I've never witnessed any such behavior. I opinion is that it is a really fun "niteclub" and the owner is a great guy....

Town of Maringouin, La.-
Maringouin Mayor John F. Overton is working to resolve problems cited in an advisory report from the Louisiana Legislative Auditor, an official from the auditor’s office told the POST/SOUTH.

Joy Irwin, director of advisory services for the Legislative Auditor, said her office conducts special assessments of local governments after seeing repeat findings in their regular audit reports, as had been the case with Maringouin.

Irwin said her staff uses a “Checklist of Best Practices in Government” to take a closer look at how officials are handing taxpayers’ money.

“We help them and lay out a plan for them on how to resolve the [audit] findings,” the director said.

“The mayor was very cooperative,” she said, adding that Overton calls for advice on how to resolve issues.“Hopefully, we’ve got them on the right path.”

In the special report, the auditor’s office cited problems with the handling of utility bills, including accounting for money received and the collection of past due accounts, which totaled $168,510.

The office also cited weaknesses in the town’s handling of traffic tickets, in monitoring gasoline and diesel use by town employees, and shortcomings in purchasing procedures and collections of delinquent occupational license fees.

“We’ll monitor and look at it again,” Irwin said, if Maringouin’s regular audit reports show continuing problems.

Plaquemine, La.-
New FEMA maps 700 more homes need flood insurance Parish officials will host two meetings next week for parish residents to meet with state and federal officials about new flood insurance requirements, Parish President J. Mitchell Ourso Jr. said.

Under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposed new flood maps, another 700 Iberville Parish homeowners will be required to buy flood insurance in order to be covered, Ourso said. Residents will be able to inspect the maps and ask questions about their insurance needs at community forums from 10 a.m. 6 p.m. Monday at the St. Gabriel Community Center and Tuesday at the Carl F. Grant Civic Center.

“Basically, FEMA has done some new mapping that was somewhat of a surprise to us,” the parish president said.“They surveyed the parish again and put areas of the parish that [were] never in a flood zone into a flood zone.”

The parish has sent letters to those affected inviting them to the meetings next week.“It’s nothing the parish did. It’s what FEMA is doing,” Ourso said.

The federal agency is reassessing property throughout south Louisiana because of the storms that have hit the area in recent years, he said. Ourso said the parish has hired engineers Forte & Tablada to represent the parish on the issues.

“If there are some that we could prove that don’t need to be considered, we’re going to do what we can do,” he said. FEMA officials will be able to tell property owners why their property was included in newly-designated flood zones.

“If anybody can prove that the elevation is wrong, they can be taken out.” He said he called for the community meetings because “I don’t want these people to be blindsided by the insurance company.

Meanwhile, Ourso said, more than 300 people in Plaquemine and just under 100 in Grosse Tete have qualified for the “right of entry” program that allows government contractors to remove storm damaged trees that threaten their homes. Once those are completed, work will scheduled in other areas of the parish, he said.

Residents might be eligible for the program if they have broken branches or leaning trees threatening their residences or their access to them. The threat must have been caused by Hurricane Gustav to a private residence that was occupied at the time of the storm.

Homeowners can apply for the “Personal Property Debris Removal” program from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week at the Plaquemine Library at 24605 J. Gerald Berret Boulevard.

They should provide a copy of their most recent Homestead Exemptions. The deadline for applying is Saturday, March 28. Also, he said, FEMA has authorized funding to clean out some 70 trees down by Hurricane Gustav that are hindering navigation in Bayou Plaquemine.

My God people, a club is a club.... spelled another way "hole in the wall". It's what you get when the club is located in the country and the building was built in the 40's. This is just somewhere for people to go to have something to dosuch as, Like die from 2nd hand smoke or get run over by a drunk drive when leaving... Hell it's all part of the fun that some of you seek. quote "living on the edge" end quote. So please save the bitching and stay home. The reality of it is... you don't have to come to the hill. I'm sure you could find something else to do. Unless you have no life, other then the hill. It seems like there is something there for everyone, that visit. It seem to be packed most weekends. I'm considering manage that club for my boyee. It would get a lot better. All and ya'll ass would pay to get in the door like every other club. The BYOB shit would be cut out, there would be a policeman at the door and down the road for all the dum ass that leave driving drunk. Hey after all I need my cut from the parish. Keep complainting the best is yet to come.. Momma
